Army to Issue RFI on Electronic Warfare Tech

The U.S. Army intends to release a market survey to seek for electronic warfare capabilities with extended range coverage, C4ISRNET reported Thursday. Kenneth Strayer, deputy program manager for electronic warfare and cyber at Program Executive Office-Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors, said the notice will ask the industry follow-on questions on electronic warfare requirements and methodologies.

The planned request for information is part of the service branch's plans to reconstruct its electronic warfare portfolio in personnel capabilities and materiel technologies. In addition, the military service's officials have started the creation of requirements for signals intelligence and electronic warfare payloads on smaller unmanned systems.
